Charity the winner in Cowboys’ tournament!

AN American football Charity Tournament in aid of Marie Curie proved to be a huge success, with some tough, hard hitting football on show and a lot of money raised for a great charity!
Craigavon Cowboys are very pleased to announce that £750 was raised for Marie Curie Cancer Care, which topped off a successful day’s football on Sunday at Portdown.
Head Coach Greg Loughran said: “All the hard work in the build-up to the tournament was all worthwhile when we heard the total we were able to raise. In today’s world, where money is that little harder to come by, it is great to be able to raise that impressive total, and that figure does not include the amount given to the bucket collections on the day, which went straight to the Marie Curie charity, so a big thank-you must go to those involved in the whole day, especially to the Cowboys’ Commitee, who pulled this whole event together.”
Although it was a successful day off the pitch for the Cowboys, it was a dissappointing one on it, as the excitment of the event seemed to get to the team, as they experienced a slow start before picking up the pace – although the experience will provide the new Cowboys with some vital game time and an insight into where they need to be!
